Trader Joe’s has built a name for itself on delicious frozen meals and snacks. In the freezer aisle, you’ll find cauliflower gnocchi, chicken tikka masala, and mushroom truffle flatbreads ready to heat up; by the snacks, peanut butter filled pretzels and Cowboy Bark wait temptingly. Everyone has a favorite—and this week, the grocery store shed some light on which products customers love the most, via the 11th Annual Customer Choice Awards

The awards, compiled from customer votes, reveal top-rated products in nine categories: favorite overall, favorite entrée, favorite vegan/vegetarian item, favorite sweet treat, favorite snack, favorite beverage, favorite produce, favorite cheese, and finally, favorite in home, bath, & beauty. Some winners were obvious, like the brand’s famous Everything But The Bagel seasoning, which has practically amassed a cult following at this point; others, like the favorite snack and favorite beverage category champions, might surprise you.
